Spach/Spaugh Family

First Generation

Adam Spach was born January 20, 1720 at Pfaffenhofen, in Lower Alsace. When Adam was five years old his mother died and his father, a weaver of damask, brought his son up alone. In about 1733 (Adam Spach's thirteenth year) his father decided to migrate to America. When they reached America his father was not able to pay for Adam's full passage and a Mennonite gave the Ship L7 (seven pounds) for him, for which he had to serve for six years. He married Elisabeth Hueter in 1752 and shortly after, in 1753 moved his family to NC, staying near the Wachovia settlement. There they raised their family. Elisabeth Spach died in 1799 and Adam died two years later in 1801.

Patrick Barrett put together records for the Hutter/Hueter and Spach families and presents them on his Hutter Family History Page. Use your back button to return to this page.

The Spach surname changes to Spaugh in most families midway through the 19th century. For simplicity, we have kept the Spach spelling throughout this page.

*Johannes? or Anna Rosina? Spach (b. & d. 1805)

*Records of the Moravians in NC 6:2834 refers to the funeral of the 6-month-old child of Johannes Spach, apparently male, who died after the bite of "some poisonous creature". Previously we listed this child as Johannes. However, there is a burial record for a 6-month old girl, Anna Rosina Spach, who died on 13 Sep 1805. We suspect that either the diarist or the translator mistakenly used a male pronoun, and that Anna Rosina was the child referred to.
